Carmel-By-The-Sea 2016 [no label, 1CD]

Raw: An Acoustic Show. Live at the Sunset Center, Carmel-By-The-Sea, CA; March 15, 2016. Very good audio (ripped from AXS TV HDTV broadcast).

Adam Joseph,

When the most famous version of Peter Frampton’s “Do You Feel Like We Do” was recorded at a 1975 show at the State University of New York Plattsburgh’s Memorial Hall, it had undergone quite a change. It was no longer seven minutes, but twice that, an epic 14-minute spectacle highlighted by the frontman’s trademark guitar solo on talkbox (an effects pedal that makes it sound like he’s speaking through his guitar.)

“When we got it on stage and introduced a keyboard solo and other parts here and there, it just kept expanding,” Frampton says. “I’m not the type of artist who takes songs from an album and does them exactly the same; I like to morph [songs] into something else.”

The extended “Do You Feel Like We Do” helped morph Frampton into one of the world’s biggest rockers following its release on Frampton Comes Alive! in 1976, alongside additional hits, including “Show Me the Way,” “Baby, I Love Your Way” and “Lines on My Face.”

In the spirit of the 40th anniversary of Frampton Comes Alive!, many tunes that appear on the record have undergone another metamorphosis on Acoustic Classics. Frampton decided to take the tunes back to their infancy, as if he had just written the song and wanted to share it with a buddy on acoustic guitar. While the acoustic version of “Do You Feel” is whittled down to just over six minutes, Frampton makes you forget that you originally fell in love with its younger brother, more than twice its size.

  4. Thank you BigO, I’m looking forward to hearing this.

  5. Does anyone know if Frampton comes alive is overdubbed? It’s one of my favorite albums growing up and I’ve heard it was redone in the studio. If true that really sucks thanks

    By CJ on Oct 12, 2019

  6. CJ - From Frampton himself in an interview in St Louis Riverfront Times
    “I’ll tell you exactly what happened when we mixed the live album, so there are no ifs, buts, where or whats. This was the rule that I had when we made “Frampton Comes Alive!,” being known as a live performer, I’m not going to go into the studio and overdub. If you want to say that, say that about ‘Kiss Alive,’ because they borrowed my guitars and my amps to do those overdubs.”

    “We left the mistakes in. If I wanted to have my voice be perfect and in tune, I would have re-sung the whole album. But I didn’t. Because it wouldn’t be live. And there are some really bad notes that I sing. There’s some out of tune guitar notes that I play, as well.”

  7. I saw him open for J Geils Band in 1975 and his show preceded the live album and was every bit as good as the album. He blew J Geils off the stage.

  8. I’ve also heard the overdub rumor on FCA . Maybe someone can shed some light on the truth.

    By Bill on Oct 13, 2019

  9. It’s an established fact that there were considerable overdubs on The Band’s “The Last Waltz.”

    By Mark on Oct 13, 2019

  10. Bill…You moron read two post above from weeble29,how much light do you need….You would not know the truth if I hit you in the head with it….also they only dubbed Rick Danko’s vocals and others because of flat Microphones,Then never let the truth get in the way of a good story….

  11. I doubt that Frampton or any live artist or band would admit to overdubs even if it were true. From what I understand The original Who live at Leeds was completely raw and live . It only contained 5 songs however. The later expanded editions reportedly had many overdubs as Roger and Pete added guitar and vocals in the studio . The worst example of deceiving the public to me was get your ya yas out. The stones supposed re recorded everything in the studio . My philosophy is trust only bootlegs. Officials are usually tampered with .

    By Bill on Oct 13, 2019

  12. Kiss Alive 1 and 2,were completely live by all accounts. Gene and Paul swear it’s true.

    By Kiss fanatic on Oct 13, 2019

  13. Framptons bootlegs from the same period sound different than the life album .My bet is he redid everything in the studio. It’s never truly live if it’s an official release.

    By Thomas on Oct 13, 2019

  14. This is Great! Thanks BigO! To all of you Rock & Roll Purists, Who cares if FCA was overdubbed? Still a great album to listen to after all of these years, which just may be the reason why. According to Denny Laine, the 3 album set of Wings Over America was also overdubbed and I have no complaints about that.

    By BigE on Oct 13, 2019

  15. Allman Brothers Live at the Fillmore..straight no filler no overdubs.
    C,S,N,and Y at woodstock overdubbed to death.

    shit happens

    By sluggo on Oct 13, 2019

  16. I knew Wings over America was re done . Still don’t know why . I’ve got boots from that tour and some sound great . A great one exists from Mike Millard . To me ya yas was the most disappointing, mainly because I loved that album so much as a kid

    By Bill on Oct 13, 2019

  17. They should put a disclaimer out contains overdubs on the albumn or cd covers . Then people could decide themselves whether or not to purchase something. It’s the dishonesty that I find wrong

    By Bill on Oct 13, 2019

  18. Live should mean live as it happened on that date . Warts and all

    By Bill on Oct 13, 2019

  19. As long as the music ist great, I don’ t give a damm if it’s overdubbed

    By dugfried on Oct 14, 2019

  20. The. Don’t call it a live album , that’s all .Simple as that , because it’s not live .

    By Bill on Oct 14, 2019

  21. Frampton Comes Alive has a fantastic mix… but all the live shows I’ve heard leading up to FCA basically sound that way. He’s an extraordinary player

    By DanC on Oct 14, 2019

  22. I liked Frampton comes alive as a kid . I would hate to think it’s been fucked with but you never know .

    By Nelson on Oct 15, 2019

  23. Ooooh, neato< Thanx!

    By leesa on Oct 15, 2019

  24. Bill,I have a confession to make…All my live albums are dubbed and like all your favorite girls Miley Cyrus Etc…Me and the band we never played live only LIPSYNC Why do you bother talking about music you know nothing about it, go back to your Ken dolls….

    By tom petty's ghost on Oct 15, 2019

  25. Nobody blows The J Geils Bland off the stage….
